Dick Cheney Halliburton Stock up over 3000% Since 2004

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on June 28th, 2007 9:36 am by HL

More fallout from Dick Cheney and his Halliburton stock. In 2005 The US Government has handed out almost $400 Billion in no bid contracts as opposed to $160 Billion in competitive contracts. This alone should be an impeachable offense. (On top of everything else Bush and Cheney should be put on trial for) Most of the no bids of course are going to Halliburton which Cheney as former CEO still owns hundreds of thousands of shares in. Why doesn’t congress do something about the fact that Cheney is the world’s biggest war profiteer. The Democrats are failing us because they refuse to do anything about a guy who is violating the constitution and the American people at every turn. IMPEACH THESE BASTARDS ALREADY

Report: ‘Shadow Goverment’ Of Private Contractors Explodes Under Bush

Raw Story
Excerpt:
A new report by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform concludes that, under the Bush administration, the “shadow government of private companies working under federal contract has exploded in size. Between 2000 and 2005, procurement spending increased by over $175 billion dollars, making federal contracts the fastest growing component of federal discretionary spending.”

Chart shows government no bid contracts vs. competitive contracts
– Halliburton has been the “fastest growing contractor.” Under the Bush administration, federal spending to Halliburton “increased over 600% between 2000 and 2005.” The Government Accountability Office recently found that the government has wasted at least $2.7 billion to Halliburton on “overpriced contracts or undocumented costs.” At the end of 2005, Cheney’s stock options were valued at more than $8 million, a 3,281 percent gain from 2004.
